Last week I was on a panel and Greg Corner of Kill Hannah and he asked me about the Chicago battle scene. I haven’t really kept up with it in a minute, but it got thinking about Chicago’s strong history of battle emcees. I decided to reach out to Prime, ne of our city’s resident battle historians for an update, as well as a top 5 list of Chicago’s best battle emcees. Prime runs down the list, which contains a couple locks as well as a surprise nod.
Check out Prime’s List.
